The Magnificent Seven is a 2016 American western film directed by Antoine Fuqua, written by Nic Pizzolatto and Richard Wenk. It is a reimagination of the 1960 western film of the same name, which in turn was a remake of the 1954 Japanese film Seven Samurai. The film stars Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D'Onofrio, Lee Byung-hun, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo,Martin Sensmeier, Haley Bennett and Peter Sarsgaard. It is the final film of composer James Horner, who died the previous year after composing a part of the score; his friend Simon Franglen completed the music.


After a greedy industrialist Bartholomew Bogue kills her husband and vows to drive out the people of Rose Creek, Emma Cullen employs protection from seven outlaws, bounty hunters, gamblers and misfits – Sam Chisolm, Joshua Faraday, Goodnight Robicheaux, Jack Horne, Billy Rocks, Vasquez, and Red Harvest. As they prepare the town for the violent showdown that they know is coming, these seven mercenaries find themselves fighting for more than money.
